Gestamp responds to values that represent the foundation of our commitment to society. We base our actions on five basic principles:
The client as the center of the business
The basis of our business lies in achieving and maintaining a client portfolio by developing and providing products that offer high value in terms of innovation, price, quality, safety and environmental impact. We must be able to take the lead in providing the best solutions so that the business of each of our clients prospers, which requires having a thorough understanding of their needs in the short, medium and long term. Building solid, honest and lasting relationships with our clients is what really sets us apart.
Operating excellence as a regular practice
Competitiveness is not merely a matter of chance nor does it sprout up all of a sudden. It is a matter of quality, efficiency and efficacy. It is acquired through a long learning process. It is kept up with consistency, fulfilment, a sense of urgency and using the correct procedures to execute every task as best as possible. It is improved by means of a constant effort by everyone to improve what is already good.
In such a competitive sector as the automobile industry we have to stand out in what we do. Our operations must be excellent.
Innovation as a means of progress
Innovation enables us to consolidate the Group's leadership and to provide new alternatives for products and processes that bring value to clients and efficiency to our internal management. Our challenge is to be at the forefront of innovation in our sector, to be innovative and to get our clients to be aware of the differential value provided by Gestamp.
Sustainability to ensure permanence in time
We plan to grow and to be around for a long time. Financial strength, profitability, cautious risk management and respect for the different environments in which we operate are the best guarantees of our future. Winning the trust of our shareholders and business partners, complying with the laws of the countries where we operate, expressing our support for fundamental human rights and making health, safety and environment important issues.
People as architects of success
Talent, motivation and the ability to work as part of a team of people are essential assets for Gestamp's success. Promoting the personal and professional development of employees, which then brings about the fulfilment of other business objectives.
